Originating from the lotus, which symbolizes supreme enlightenment in Buddhism, Guru Padmasambhava embodies the pinnacle of wisdom. In this gilded copper Padmasambhava statue from Nepal, Guru Padmasambhava is attired vibrantly, with blooming lotuses patterned on it. The multiplicity of colors used on this icon symbolizes the various elements of the universe, which unify to provide the master with befitting garbs. With the pot of ambrosia, Vajra, and staff with three heads presenting youth, old age, and death, Padmasambhava in this statue underlines the impermanence of life while holding the nectar of knowledge in his hands.
